Describing oneself is tricky. I am an unpretentious, outgoing, warm, and versatile woman. I try to be an attentive listener and good communicator. I value consideration, humor, compassion, engaging company, verve, and I love to laugh. Music is a delight and a refuge. I like to dance, attend classical music concerts, big band and Latin music concerts, opera and theater selectively and would enjoy sharing these plus life's daily activities with an intelligent partner. I hail from a large family, so hosting guests at Shabbat and holiday dinners is a pleasure. I've lived, loved and worked in Israel and I always look forward to being there. I work in Berkeley, California. I will be working in NY this spring and look forward to bike riding in Riverside Park. Being huggable is important.
